it in front of 40 million people. [ laughter ] >> obama: four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost the auto industry was on the brink of collapse the financial system has frozen up and because of the resilience and determination of the american people we have begun to fight our way back. we have seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back and house has begun to rise. but we all know we still have a lot of work to do. so the question is not where we have been but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations, that we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have got to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure we're helping small businesses and companies here in the united states, that we take some of the money we're saving as we wind down tw
it or not the first time they've seen barack obama in four years and the first time they've seen mitt romney. >> we watch this stuff all the time. >> bill: that debate was not for us. it was for the undecideds. >> not to say -- for example, my wife is not an undecided voter but she doesn't follow this stuff as closely as we did so we sat down to watch it together and 30 minutes in, she looks at me and she's not a very political person and she looks at me, what is he doing? he's not winning this debate. he's not coming off very well. and so you know, it is not just something that we're in a bubble and we follow this all the time. he really didn't do a good job. >> bill: no. i think people were waiting for him. they would hear romney say something and they were waiting for him -- again i keep coming back to that -- >> i'm still waiting for it. >> bill: i keep coming back to the $716 billion. it drove me freakin' crazy! because i know that it's phoney-baloney. it's been called phoney-baloney by politifact and "the washington po
today all saying question not afford four more years with president obama in office. one ad targets nevada voters and features greg anthony who was born in the state. another focuses on unemployment and foreclosures in ohio. and this one. >> over $0.30 of every dollar obama spends is borrowed much of it from countries like china. he is not just wasting money, he is borrowing it and then wasting it. >> that is a huge romney talking point and really one of the only plans we have heard from him is if he is elected we'll crack down on trade. he brought that up on wednesday's debate when he said every federal program will have to pass a test. it is worth borrowing money from china to pay for it. yes, china does hold large amount of u.s. debt but its stake is only 8%. we owe two-thirds of our debt right back to the federal government. romney is also focusing on messages that president obama will raise taxes on middle class by about $4,000 per family. but the obama campaign is firing back and saying that study has nothing to do with the president's policies. fact the presi
the breaks he wants that could actually fund pbs for 500 years. that's republican priority. now when we come back did president obama take it easy on mitt romney because fox news and conservatives kept calling him an angry black man? really interesting conversation. we'll have that when we return. >> jim, you may want to move on to another topic but i would say this to the american people. >> obama does not have the latitude that white guys who start you morning with a daily dose of politics from a fresh perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. home of the brave. ♪ ♪ it's where fear goes unwelcomed... ♪ ♪ and certain men... find a way to rise above. this is the land of giants. ♪ ♪ guts. glory. ram.

there is an effort by the obama campaign to say look, you've been working on the issues for four years. you know them inside and out. you know debates. focus on trying to have a good time. enjoy yourself. both campaigns are suggesting they think that the first debate may be not so -- it may be like john mccain and barack obama four years ago. the first debate was the first letdown. a lot of wonkiness. they didn't go after each other very hard. they were a little bit nervous in feeling each other out. >> eliot: the notion they would enjoy it, i can tell you i've been through debates nothing on term with that, you don't enjoy it. there are butterflies in your stomach when you walk out there. you know the campaign potentially rests on every utterance you make. there is the his tansey -- hesitancy no matter how skilled you may be, there is a hesitancy and a fear. that's unavoidable. >> how do you deal with glenn beck who is a master of television regardless of what people may think about him. they're using a nice picture of you g
and barack obama has not had one for four years, and it was obvious he wasn't used to it. his body language was horrible. the fact he dropped his head, and he looked like a whipped dog to me. >> stephanie: uh-huh. >> but they can adjust this. they can fix it and it's like i said their strategy was, don't lose what we got. and it never works in politics don't lose what we have already got never works. if the other guy is coming at you, and you are just on the defense. it's obvious you are just trying to hang on to what you got. >> stephanie: yeah, the president is pulling so far ahead in so many polls, and mitt romney has had such a disastrous two months do you think the president felt like he didn't have to fact check him again? >> who knows. the whole point is they were on defense and you can't go there. i would have tried to have buried him last night, and tried to end it you know, right there. make the rest of the debates completely inconsequence shall and just take him down, but they chose not to do that. it was their strategy. >> stephanie: now, mud the last debate is for
